Kindergarten is a place and a time to make a transition from home to school. The kindergarten classroom is a fun and busy place, with lots of activities to help children learn in a faith-based, positive and caring environment.
Our interactive and academic program will help your child develop literacy, numeracy, and social skills that will prepare them for school success. We also encourage physical, spiritual, creative and emotional development all of which are integral components of the learning process.
Our literacy program is used to develop oral reading and comprehension skills. Students begin to build the foundation for story and narrative writing which will support future learning in the grades to come. Interactive activities such as our buddy reading program provides opportunity for older students to assist younger students with literacy development while fostering relationships across grade levels.
Our numeracy program focuses on equipping students to be effective problem solvers and apply critical thinking skills to authentic scenarios. As student understandings can vary greatly at this stage of learning, our teachers work to differentiate instruction to support our students wherever they are in the learning process.
Weekly Bible classes are an important part of our Christian Studies program. Students study and are encouraged to apply what the Bible teaches to their everyday interactions. Understanding that faith should be part of everything we do, our staff also work to integrate biblical teachings across subject areas. Students are encouraged in their faith through weekly chapel services which serve as a time for students to worship and learn with other students from their division.
Starting in grade 4, Spanish and French are offered as second languages. Students also have the opportunity to get involved in co-curricular programs including music, drama, choir, band and athletics.
